The Bulk / Auto Add Tab
The Bulk/Auto Add tab provides access to settings for both Tools>Bulk Add Shows and the Preferences>Scan Options - Additional Actions: Notify when new shows are found preference.
Looking at the Bulk Add: section, two options are available and they both work as “junk filters”.
Firstly, Only Include Folders containing Video Files if ticked restricts the “Bulk Add” scan to only include folders with video files.
And Secondly, Ignore Recycle Bin tells the “Bulk Add” scan to exclude the (Windows) Recycle Bin even if it contains video files.
And Finally, Force to Use Season Words from Settings only tells the “Bulk Add” scan to just use the words entered in the preferences when it is scanning to decide whether the series has a flat structure or a ‘folder by season’ structure.
The Auto Add: section comes in to play when the Preferences>Scan Options - Additional Actions: Notify when new shows are found option is ticked.
The “Movie Terms:” box helps TV Rename identify “types” of video file.
And the “Ignore Suffixes:” box tells TV Rename to ignore the specified suffixes.
